    I've seen the cool banners on some posters pictures. I wanna be cool too!

    OK, actually, I'm more than happy to send a little money along to defray the costs. How do I do that? (I kicked in some for the server replacement back in the dark ages.)

    Bump. Because I never saw an answer to this. And if I missed it, I'm sorry.

    This isn't the blue ribbon you need, and yours is not the cash they need.

    Let's face it, if ANYONE could be a "supporter" it would lessen the sting of "that person" that says "you don't support the forum so all of your opinions are wrong and I can call you #$%, ^%, @#$%^" They can also offer ponies, challenge your manhood, and hand out the silly "Butt Hurt" form.

    Lest I forget "Start your own forum and then you can make your own rules"

    It's necessary to have unattainable "status" to keep the likes of them happy.

    Sometimes I think like Groucho. I would never join an organization that would have me as member.:)

    Cheers

    No, it no longer works.

    Unless it's a problem with me hitting it from Canada, which I doubt.

    Forums such as this don't really need outside support or donations. Don't you realize they're set up and maintained by egregiously wealthy tech dorks ?

    I like Xenforo, and no ads. I'd donate.
